WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate report on the CIA's post-Sept. 11 brutal interrogations shows how a rigorous examination of a secret agency can expose misconduct, incompetence and bureaucratic spin, even for doubters of the investigation's assertion that torture did not work.
The review also highlights how rarely such thorough public appraisals of intelligence programs occur. And it raises the question of how well other CIA initiatives are managed, from targeted killing with drones to the secret effort to train and arm Syrian rebels.
